      Steve found the "last known 20 spline yoke in existence." haha. Manual T50 transmission out of a TA22 Celica (slotted tip on the shifter, not round like normal T50's), pretty hard to find any parts for this car, let alone the random supppper hard to find transmission.

      Couple other pics
      Couldn't source an original fan so I had to go with a Flex 14" fan with a 1" spacer

      Found an old Suntune mini tach which I believe is from the 80's?

        Non-stop nightmare looking for parts for this car . Been trying to source a brake caliper/bracket for almost two months now. It seems that brake calipers/brackets were the same from 71ish - 4/74. Then they made them a little taller (1/2") from 5/74-12/74 for the "California" model TE27. Then on 1/75, they changed them again. Argggggg. I have an additional right caliper coming from Puerto Rico this week and this will be the last piece of the puzzle before she can get on the road.

        Correct brake bracket for "California" model

        Pre 4/74 brackets/caliper

        These little spacers are impossible to find

        Got some original "side garnish", but had to paint them

        A couple random pics

        Got an OG washer
